Malthus Essay On Principle Of Population 1798

The friend of the present order of things condemns all political speculations in the gross.

He will not even condescend to examine the grounds from which the perfectibility of society is inferred.

Subsistence increases only in an arithmetical ratio.

A slight acquaintance with numbers will shew the immensity of the first power in comparison of the second.

Much less will he give himself the trouble in a fair and candid manner to attempt an exposition of their fallacy.

The speculative philosopher equally offends against the cause of truth.

But Mr Godwin has conjectured that the passion between the sexes may in time be extinguished.

As, however, he calls this part of his work a deviation into the land of conjecture, I will not dwell longer upon it at present than to say that the best arguments for the perfectibility of man are drawn from a contemplation of the great progress that he has already made from the savage state and the difficulty of saying where he is to stop.

Assuming then my postulata as granted, I say, that the power of population is indefinitely greater than the power in the earth to produce subsistence for man.

Population, when unchecked, increases in a geometrical ratio.
